Having fireworks at fairgrounds would solve all the problems

To the Editor:

— I feel the solution to the Fourth of July fireworks at Constitution‚ÄąPark could be found very easily and safely and it would be a win-win solution for all.

If the city of Cumberland and Allegany County would work together, we could have this celebration at the Allegany County Fairgrounds.

It has a beautiful setting, plenty of places to park, grandstand seating and a stage for the concert before the fireworks.

Have all the concession stands open, and it would be a wonderful evening of family entertainment.

Plus, the park pool could be open all day with no problems, and the kids would be happy.
